OUCH!! What would this cost to fix??



Havent seen this trailer in person, before we do just wondering if anyone would have a guesstimate on what this would cost to fix? We are also wondering if we should be concerned if this impacts the window...leaks etc.
Thanks
LilNomad

Hey LiL-N,

Is there supposed to be a link or some photographs showing the conditions of concern?

That's a big chunk to replace; what happened? I'd say 4-6k. Just noticed the crease in the roof, also. ++++

Welcome to the forum Lil nomad,
I agree with Mike's estimate, easily 4-6k.
Is this your first Airstream?

I would say closer to $ 7, and only if done properly.

If insurance is involved they may want to deem the coach a "total" constructive loss.

If that's the case, you can buy it back, fairly cheap.

Ouch is right!

You really need to pass on this one and save your money for something a little less "modified"! Those are some major creases in the side panels and the ones on the rear segments just add to the "run away from it" opinion! Check out some of the trailers for sale on the forums classified section here. I think you can do better for your hard earned cash. Happy Trails, Ed

Good advice!
Listen to Andy, he has forgotten more about Airstream trailers than most of us on these forums will ever know. Run away from this trailer, run like the wind!
